Wisdom Multimedia: Enhance Lessons with Photos and Videos

One of the fun things about publishing a story about a wild creature is that the story is ongoing. Our book, WISDOM, THE MIDWAY ALBATROSS, features the oldest known wild bird in the world. Banded on December 10, 1956, she is over 65 years old and on February 4, 2016, she hatched a new chick. As I write this in summer, 2016, she is likely flying over the North Atlantic looking for a nice squid to eat. We’ll all hold our breath in early December to see if she returns to Midway again.

I love this cover of Wisdom, the Midway Albatross, the story of the oldest wild bird in the world. | MimsHouse.com
The US Fish and Wildlife Service continues to post many great photos and videos of the continuing story of the oldest known wild bird in the world. All FWS photos and videos are public domain and you may use them as you wish.

Here are videos about the book.
